Plant Description

Fairly common in rich woods of the east, Wild Geranium is a cheerful and easy hardy wildflower for lightly shaded gardens. Flowers are rosy-pink, sometimes white, with five rounded petals, 11/2 inches wide, from April into June. The plant makes a rounded mound up to 2 feet with deeply cleft leaves. Wild Geranium has long been a favorite for wildflower gardens because it is easy, beautiful, and not too fussy. Light shade and average soil and moisture conditions should ensure years of pleasure. If your soil is fortified with ample compost, expect to have plenty of Wild Geranium to give to friends.
